Dear Subscribers to Still Life:
You may have noticed a few irrelevant photos arriving in your inboxes lately. I’ve practiced blogging on my iPad for the past few days and you’ll be relieved to know that I now understand not to push the Publish button just because I am able to download and find a photo in a file. I’ve also figured out how to insert a photo into a blog, though I have no idea how to put in a link (which is why I alternated for the last post between my iPad and my desktop computer.) This is just to reassure you that a crazy person isn’t managing this operation, merely one who is technologically inept, and one who hopes you will be patient. Sooner or later I’ll get it right.
I retired June 30, 2010 after working for 40 years in the field of education and most recently doing school public relations/community outreach in a mid-size urban school district. I wrote for superintendents and school board members. Now I'm writing for me and I hope for you. In this blog, I offer my own views coupled with the latest research on how to preserve our physical and mental health as we age, delve into issues most of us over 50 can relate to like noticing wrinkles and forgetting where we left our keys, discuss the pros and cons of different ways to engage our minds and bodies after we leave the workplace, and throw in an occasional book review, all peppered with a touch of humor, irony, and just plain silliness. Also, I'm on the third draft of my second novel since retirement.
